Ignoring the red flags during dating because you desperately want to find love can destroy you.

Please check out the video below and notice of a fabulous Emotional Abuse Summit which will start Sept. 1. It is free of charge and I will be interviewed on the 7th day! My topic is Healing the Shame of Emotional Abuse.
I paid $197 for a summit course but I do not have any legitimate information regarding this Summit that starts September 1, 2018. If this is not a scam, then why haven't I received legitimate info regarding this summit? No website, no phone numbers to call, nothing to verify this is a legitimate purchase. Please advise. Thank you.
Thanks Teri, for a great interview! It was fun being on your show!
Thanks for Publishing my first piece with Real Life Resilience On MEDIUM!!

The biggest thing that you may have to battle is your own mind. You'll make excuses like it's not that bad, or he's sorry, he won't do it again. It's the dreaded victim mindset. Don't let it stop you from doing what you need to do.

As a woman of faith, it can be a struggle to face trauma. Strong, negative feelings can make you feel like you’re failing to be grateful for the blessings in your life. Somewhere deep down, you know that God is always with you, perhaps you feel alone when going through hard times. What can you do? I’ve found that certain Bible verses can be very encouraging during dark times in my life.https://www.lifestorylaboratory.com/14bibleverses

Have you ever heard someone say that you have to be a great writer in order to write? Well, spoiler alert: that’s ridiculous! There’s a saying in writing circles: writers write. And, like any other skill, it takes practice. Even the best writers earned that title through repeated practice: C.S. Lewis, Hemingway, Jane Austen, Shakespeare! Everything you write teaches you more about being a better writer. In my work teaching writing, I’ve come across five major myths about writing--in fact, about life storytelling in particular. Because knowledge is power, I want to share these myths with you and expose them as fiction so that they can’t hold you back any longer. https://www.lifestorylaboratory.com/5myths

I love the anticipation of vacation while I’m packing my suitcase — it carries so much excitement and promise. The baggage is good because it serves a purpose, to carry my belongings. But I don’t want to carry the suitcases around each day on my trip. It’s an inconvenience that will just weigh me down. Instead, I open the baggage, take out what I need, and leave the rest behind.

How bad is bad enough? How do you know when it’s time to leave the relationship? I believe the first step is to see it for what it is. So many women are afraid to peek under the hood and examine their relationship because they are afraid that they are going to be forced to make a decision.

School is supposed to equip us for real life, but when I found myself in a tough relationship, I didn’t even have words for what was happening. I thought I could tough it out, but what I was really doing was accepting abuse. It took many years to research, recover, and reinvent myself.

Does your partner have a habit of intimidating behaviors? For instance almost hitting you, punching walls or doors, towering over you or getting in your face, pushing or blocking you, making verbal threats, driving recklessly or speeding to show anger? This is controlling behavior and emotional abuse. Take a look back through your past year and see how many instances that has happened. These are the things we tend NOT to call abuse. But in reality, it is abuse. It’s designed to control your behavior and make you afraid and confused.
